Hair consultation - Susan

Susan's medium-length hair is limp and lifeless.

Want your own hair consultation from celebrity hairstylist Bill Angst? Send at least TWO well-lit, preferably hi-res photos of you (one close-up, one full-body) with a brief description of your hair texture, colour and main hair challenges to info@beautyeditor.ca with “Bill Angst Hair Consultation” in the subject line.

Q: I always feel my hair is so thin and doesn't look good on me. I have medium-length hair, but it's completely lifeless and just lies limp. I always wear my hair loose, and now I feel it doesn't suit my face type. Can you please suggest a hairstyle that will suit me? — Susan

A: Susan, fine hair is a favourite subject for me.

Let's talk attributes first, such as the lovely volume and movement you have at the top of your head. With these being your best bits, it is time to feature them with a cut that will showcase them:

If your hair at its present length is not working, you might want to try this cut. With this tousled, side-swept top and fringe, it will shape your face beautifully. The pokey ends will frame your lovely cheeks.

Use a molding paste on the ends to achieve the look for the ends. With darker hair, I find the separation of the ends is really important—the shape of the cut reads better.

It would also add another layer of fun if you deepened your colour a couple of shades:

This will also add to the strength of your new cut and make your dark eyes pop...
